Cleveland Browns open to trading No. 1 pick in 2017 National Football League draft

NFL Network draftnik Mike Mayock said this week he doesn't think any quarterbacks are worthy of top-10 selections. Jackson opted to state the obvious on Thursday morning.

Cleveland has also been tied to other trades recently, especially with the reigning champion New England Patriots and their backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, but Brown wouldn't respond to the speculation.

Jackson was again inundated with quarterback queries.

"I think we'd like to have Terrelle back and that's a priority for us", Brown said.

EVP Sashi Brown admitted the Browns are still looking for the answer at quarterback. This was no doubt the work of his agent, who sees no good reason - and millions of bad ones - to take the current owners of the No. 1 overall pick out of the mix. "I think we have to do that".

Next question: How can somebody with only 13 college starts at North Carolina be ready for the NFL? Jackson keys on three fundamental areas in his evaluation. And I don't know if you mentioned this, but this is really important to me, he has to be able to process football at a high level. So we like all those things.

Arguably, the last time the Browns had their franchise quarterback was when they selected Bernie Kosar from Boardman in the first-round of the 1985 NFL Supplemental Draft.

Trubisky's height officially measured 6-2⅛ inches Thursday morning at the National Football League scouting combine.

Trubisky spent four years at North Carolina, because he redshirted in 2013.

Trubisky passed for 3,748 yards with 30 touchdowns and just six interceptions last season. Brown praised Wentz for his standout rookie season but explained why he signed off on the trade.

Asked what he viewed as the ideal height he looks for in a quarterback, Jackson smiled and said, "6-2". He went 28-2 as a starter, lost in the national championship in 2016 and beat Alabama in the rematch this year.

"Obviously, Robert is on our roster right now", he said.

Kizer might be the most gifted physically.

"There's no substitute for arm talent", Jackson said.

Or, you know, you could just go online and watch one of the dozens of scouting videos on any of these players and interpret your own results.

He smiled when he said that, too. I've come in off the bench and I saw significant time. Can you lead your team? All he can do is put his best foot forward in his upcoming interviews and on-field opportunities. "Hopefully they'll use my expertise along these lines so we can make the best decision for our organization".
